ResizeObserverSize

The ResizeObserverSize interface of the Resize Observer API is used by the ResizeObserverEntry interface to access the box sizing properties of the element being observed.

Note:

In multi-column layout, which is a fragmented context, the sizing returned by ResizeObserverSize will be the size of the first column.

Properties

ResizeObserverSize.blockSizeRead only
The length of the observed element's border box in the block dimension. For boxes with a horizontal writing-mode, this is the vertical dimension, or height; if the writing-mode is vertical, this is the horizontal dimension, or width.
ResizeObserverSize.inlineSizeRead only
The length of the observed element's border box in the inline dimension. For boxes with a horizontal writing-mode, this is the horizontal dimension, or width; if the writing-mode is vertical, this is the vertical dimension, or height.

Note:

For more explanation of writing modes and block and inline dimensions, read Handling different text directions.

Examples

In this example the ResizeObserverEntry.contentBoxSize property returns a ResizeObserverSize object. This is an array containing the sizing information for the content box of the observed element.

const resizeObserver = new ResizeObserver(entries => {
  for (let entry of entries) {
    console.log(entry.contentBoxSize[0]); // a ResizeObserverSize
  }
});

resizeObserver.observe(divElem);
